If you haven't started Stockpiling, food and resources, I would start NOW,
The Great Depression is coming!, food and fuel continue to rise in price.
Certain Signs of a Dying Economy!
Many things are happening behind the scenes as the intrigues of these last days unfold. Remember the "closed-door session" and debate by the U.S. House of Representatives.? word had leaked out about discussion concerning the collapse of the U.S. economy by September of this year. Because it was a closed-door session, there is obviously no documentary proof of what was discussed but all the signs are there!
This is changing the entire world of banking. On May 27th, 2008, the Wall Street Journal reported that the well-known and respected economist Ed Yardeni recently stated, "The Government of Last Resort is working with the Lender of Last Resort to shore up the housing and credit markets to avoid Great Depression II."
Economics expert George Soros recently stated, "We are in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the 1930's." The general consensus of many top economists is that there will be a ten-year depression followed by a world war. Current conditions are so very much like 1928-1929, and when the crash came in 1929, amazed, dazed, and disillusioned investors gathered in front of Federal Hall on Wall Street as a stunned nation fell into the hardest times it had ever known. Then ten years later, the horrors of World War II began.
On June 18th, 2008, the Royal Bank of Scotland formally issued a global stock and credit crash alert. The bank advised clients to brace for a "full-fledged crash in global stock and credit markets over the next three months as inflation paralyses the major central banks." The Royal Bank of Scotland's chief credit strategist said, "A very nasty period is soon to be upon us - be prepared!"
Signs of a bankrupt America are everywhere. Our great bridges and freeways are being sold to foreign countries and interests, and now even the treasured New York skyscrapers are being sold to Arab and European countries, who are taking advantage of our weak dollar. The iconic Chrysler and Flatiron skyscrapers, as well and the GM building, are all being sold to overseas investors. It seems that our entire nation is on the auction block, and our prized landmarks are being sold at rummage sale prices.
America and its wealth continue to be dissolved into the global admixture in every way. We have now learned that American food companies are now outsourcing U.S. farms to Mexico. These American companies have forsaken American farm land for Mexican land and cheap labor. There are at least 45,000 acres in Mexico that are under this program, and it is expanding rapidly.
More wealth is moving to Mexico as Ford Motor Company is building a giant manufacturing operation in suburban Mexico City. Ford is renovating two plants and building a new one for the production of its "global car", the Fiesta. Ford is initially spending over three billion dollars on the project.
Another example of what is happening in our country is what has happened to the large agricultural industry of Oregon and Washington. Big Valley Foods of Westchester, Illinois, has notified the cucumber growers of that region that they are no longer needed. The company is also closing the North Portland processing plant, because all of their cucumber pickles will be brought in from India and packaged with the American brand names. Check the back of the labels and see if it says "product of India."
Traitors In Washington
Our traitors in Washington and our nefarious major corporations as well have betrayed the American people and the American way of life. Recently, news commentator Jack Cafferty took a lot of heat for telling it like it is regarding Red China! He said the following: "We continue to import their junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food, and export jobs to places where you can buy workers for a dollar a month to turn out the stuff that we're buying from Wal-Mart. So I think our relationship with China has certainly changed. I think they're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years."
On May 22nd, the price of crude oil topped $130 per barrel for the first time, and now it is near $140 per barrel. Gasoline at the pump ranges in price from $4 dollars to $5 dollars per gallon. We must remember that these prices are based on when crude oil was $90 dollars per barrel. Without a doubt, gasoline prices will reach $7 dollars per gallon at the pump very soon. The airlines are also suffering as 100,000 people per day are avoiding air trips. There have never been times such as these in America!
